This is a tender port which is always a hassle. Other than that, it was an enjoyable stop. Highly recommend booking Oli's Trolley long tour. Had a very good lobster roll at West St. Cafe which is located just across the street from where you board the trolley.
In Halifax we booked a private tour with Your Cabs. Our driver was Jonathon Duru who has to the best tour guide we have ever booked. His knowledge of the history of Halifax, the Titanic and Peggy's Cove was outstanding.
